DURANT, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma state legislator says he helped an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper in arresting an unruly man along Interstate 35 in Carter County near Ardmore.
Rep. Dustin Roberts, R-Durant, tells the Durant Daily Democrat that he was traveling to Oklahoma City for a legislative meeting this week when he spotted the trooper wrestling a man on the side of the highway.
Roberts says he and another motorist pulled over. The legislator says he identified himself and offered assistance, which the trooper accepted. Roberts says the trooper told him and the other motorist how they could help and the legislator eventually assisted in handcuffing the combative man.
Ken Duncan of the OHP says the trooper later found a 10-pound brick of marijuana in the combative man's vehicle.
